A group of future nurses in Haiti is now benefiting from your outpouring of help following the tragic impact of Hurricane Matthew on that beleaguered island. In a letter to St. Margaret’s members, the executive director of the Haiti Nursing Foundation, Marcia Lane, writes:
Because of donors like you, students at FSIL* Nursing School have begun a new academic year. Your welcome gift of $812 offers an incredible opportunity to these young Haitians in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
Imagine having the chance not only to ensure a better future for yourself, but to improve your extended family’s living conditions as well. That’s exactly what a nurse’s modest salary does in Haiti. It can help support twenty people!
FSIL gives its graduates the tools they need to become health care leaders, with pride in their profession. And with the new Nurse Midwifery graduate program beginning in January 2017, FSIL remains the only school in Haiti offering both undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. You helped create this success story! Thank you.
